Baked Sweet Potato

Any variety of orange- or red-skinned, orange-fleshed sweet potato can be used in this recipe. When shopping, look for sweet potatoes that are uniform in size. Personally, I prefer smaller potatoes.

Top potatoes with butter or with one of my two suggested sauces; Garam Masala Yogurt or Garlic and Chive Sour Cream (recipes follow).
